    For some inexplicable reason at times I close out of Safari entirely and when I later reopen it, it has shrunk to a much smaller window and even when maximize it with the green button, I still need to stretch the window to bring it to its former size. What can I do to prevent this?

    There's probably an easier way, but you could use the 'reset Safari' option. That's more of a nuclear option though.

    Try this this fix from the Apple forums.

    Try deleting the cache associated with Safari.
    Open the Finder. From the menu bar top of your screen click Go > Go to Folder
    Typs this exactly as you see it here: ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari/Cache.db
    Click Go
    Move the Cache.db file to the Trash.
    Quit then relaunch Safari to test.
